Have you seen Extreme Couponing on TLC?

That show is awesome! And has now inspired me to coupon. But HOW in the world do they get so much for free. I guess I really don't know how to coupon correctly lol..

Can someone explain this please?? I need to do this to save money!!

  • Horrible show filled with a crap-ton of misinformation. Those aren't couponers, they're compulsive shoppers and/or hoarders who use coupons to get their fix. What you see on that show is faked for the cameras in exchange for publicity for the grocery stores. Check out some of the frugal living and couponing groups on CM to find out how to do it for real.

  • i use Coupons all of the time & save alot especially on Soap, Shampoo,Razors, Washing Powder, ect...... but, i agree with Not Panicking- That show is a little Off the Wall! Saving is one thing but, they are Ridiculous- i don't want 100 jars of Spaghetti Sauce even if it did end up Free! LOL:) Check out their groups- i'm sure you will learn alot more about using Coupons-
